Came here on the way to San Francisco, and were
so happy we did! Located in a cozy downtown part of San Carlos we loved the atmosphere. Street parking not too crowded.
Ordered filet, cooked perfect to temp. Deviled eggs are really delicious. Dressing on the wedge was amazing.
Loved our whole experience. Server was

Enrique, our server, was amazing per usual! Food was phenomenal and I'd only recommend Town for a high end but affordable steakhouse in the Peninsula area. There is absolutely no competition when it comes to service and food quality and ambiance! Thank you Town!

One of my go to places for years
Outstanding food , solid if not excellent service, good ambiance and a downtown San Carlos location make this a keeper.
I have enjoyed romantic dinners, corporate dinners, business meetings, casual dinners and everything in between at Town. All have been top notch experiences. I honestly do not recall having a bad meal or time at this place and that is very rare taking Into account the number of times I have been a guest.
Like it's sister restaurant Nola and the now defunct Kingfish, the menu is spot on and always delicious.
If you haven't been take the time to go and enjoy a great meal.

Service was great! When I made the reservation, there was a question if the reservation was for a special occasion so I indicated that it was to celebrate my friend's birthday. I didn't think anything about it! We arrived at the restaurant, we take our seats and pick up our menus... Guess what? The menu was personalized with her name and a birthday wish printed on top of it. That was a really nice detail! But wait, we all sang happy birthday with our server and she received a nice complementary bread pudding that we all got to enjoy and got to blow out her candle. Thank you TOWN! Very happy customer!!

Yum! Cauliflower appetizer, healthy and super tasteful! Signature cosmo deep flavor and good! Hot spot so reservations a must and especially if bigger group of 6-8 persons; walk in is difficult-a wait for sure even for 2 persons. Outdoor front walkway seating. Popular...so it is good!

Dungeness crab sandwich on a brioche lobster roll was yummy. Prime rib French dip is always a hit. Outdoor seating was so nice on a warm sunny day. Service was at its usually friendly and efficiency.

Great date night dinner! Our server Andrea was amazing, very friendly & knowledgeable, excellent service all around. As always the appetizers, Dinner (filet mignon) & cocktails (pomegranate martinis) also excellent. The only thing I would comment on was I was disappointed in the loudness in the restaurant and casual atmosphere of Town since my last visit over a year ago. I used to regularly meet friends & Town was always a classy restaurant with an upscale atmosphere. Most premier restaurants when averaging over $250 for dinner for two, have some dress code guidelines like no sweats & t-shirts. A restaurant’s ambiance is part of the package deal expected at five star restaurants.

Our family loves coming to Town for birthday celebrations. Today, we came for my husbands 50th birthday! From the moment we entered the restaurant service was impeccable as always. The food and drinks were both delicious. We love the pomegranate martinis and the crab sandwich with creamed spinach. My hubby had the filet this time and raved how good it was. Our waitress (sorry I didn’t catch her name) was also very bubbly and nice. She made our celebration very special. We will be back soon!!

It was a great experience! I loved that we were able to sit outside! I went with some friends for a girls’ night out and everything was perfect. We had to wait a little to get seated even though we had a reservation, and the hostess offered us a round of drinks on the house. We didn’t even feel that the wait was that long, but to be offered a nice little treat made us feel that much more appreciated as the customer. Overall, everything was fantastic! I would highly recommend Town!

The ahi tuna tataki was the best I've ever had anywhere. The philly cheesesteak spring rolls and the ribeye steak were excellent, and so was the service and the ambience. We'll be back!

Overall fantastic as usual. I had some visitors over the weekend and was extremely adamant with them about having to go to Town to try their lobster. The lobster was great as usual, however was pretty tough compared to prior visits, so was a little sad that my visitors didn't have the same experience I have had in the past. The flavor was still there, but just very surprised it was so tough. :(

Our service and food was great. The cocktails are really good, you can't go wrong. Both the fish dish and the steaks were cooked perfectly and very flavor full. What I love is they do not push it like its a steakhouse. There something for everyone on the menu.

I had called to let them know we would be a few minutes late and they said ok, but when we got there they said they put us as a “no show” and said no one had put a note. Thankfully, they still took us and seated us after waiting only 5 minutes. The food and drinks were excellent as always. We had a great time!

The food and service at Town is always very good! Although I wasn't overly impressed by their "Town Super Bowl", their only vegan option, I think that's just a matter of taste. Service was great. Wish they had a veggie burger. Wish they had free refills on sodas.
